Announcing... My First Award!


Dear Reader,

A huge thank you to Laura at My Baffling Brain for finding and nominating me for this award. The idea is for undiscovered blogs, those with less than 200 followers to get more exposure to the wider blogging community. I apologise in advance to the wider blogging community who may get exposed to me.


The rules for accepting the award are:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.
2. Nominate up to five others for the award.
3. Let them know via comment on their blog.
4. Post the award on your blog.

So, I trawled the A-Z challenge list of bloggers to find the following three that caught my eye and fitted the acceptance criteria.

In no particular order:

I am: Flippy Doodle. I was attracted by the name, and little pygmy marmosets and many other things.
...The Slightly Eccentric Diary of Rob Z Tobor... Guess what, it started with name again. It certainly is eccentric, and rather special.
Dave Wrote This. I used to have a cat called Dave, which has absolutely nothing to do with the reason for choosing this blog. A blog by a writer (unlike mine) who judging by his encyclopedic review of 1997 shares many of my tastes.

So there we are. I am off to go hug my award, (or something). Congrats to my nominees and thanks again to Laura at My Baffling Brain.

More soon dear reader x

  3. Well I am not a fan of awards I have this fear of thousands of followers and loosing those that matter. I am not complaining but as I am only nominated maybe I don't actually have one yet. I am in that A to Z thing I am practising because I don't know what to expect yet.

    I notice Wheelie bins; we have sadly gained wheelie bins a while ago and they are staring at me, there are three of them and they are all in it together. I don't trust them I will read another time as it is late and I have a cat sat on my head. And I will follow your blog as I will then get to it easier to read. Many thanks for your kind words "rather Special" although I note the word RATHER Mmmmmmmm not ******** Hell its ******** brilliantly special. I understand it is short (the word rather) and I sure the punters will read between the wheelie bins (sorry lines)

    1. I am not good with Portuguese, can anyone help.

      Google translator came up with this:

      Hello .. congratulations on the award. very cool. I thank you for the visit and then also my bloguinho. Come when you want and you can, you will always be very welcome. It is with the Father of Heaven Aus 1000 and 1000 Kisses with love and care of new girlfriends ... LILLY & KIPPY

      Which told me that I hadn't fallen out with the Portuguese mafia:)

      So in English...

      LILLY & KIPPY.
      Thank you for your kind words. Be assured I will be visiting very soon. Hope you are both well and I love the Hat Oscar, richly deserved. I hope this message doesn't get lost in translation :)

      Googles attempt at Portuguese...

      LILLY & KIPPY.
